The benefits of connectorized I/O
This White Paper asserts that connectorization is the perfect complement to fieldbus systems, but difficult to measure during the initial planning stages.PLUG-AND-PLAY connectorization has been standard practice in industries ranging from manufacturers to industrial sensors for many years. These industries have found it necessary to compete in a business climate where speed and consistency of connection is king.
This White Paper asserts that connectorization is the perfect complement to fieldbus systems. The concepts and goals are identical: reduced installation, reduced troubleshooting and easy expansion. The fieldbus system minimizes point-to-point wiring which can be time consuming and difficult to troubleshoot. Connectorization takes that one step further, almost completely eliminating troubleshooting.
Troubleshooting costs can be significant, as this White Paper points out, but difficult to measure during the initial planning stages. Plants that implemented plug-and-play connectorization reportedly claim up to 75% reduction in start-up costs. These are real cost savings.
